Brickley, Tuomie honored

Two Minnesota State players were honored by the WCHA play on Monday for their performances in the weekend's win and tie (and 3-on-3 win) against Lake Superior State.

Sophomore defenseman Daniel Brickley was named Defensive Player of the Week. He had a goal and an assist on Saturday and was +2 and blocked nine shots for the weekend (+3 on Friday and six blocks on Friday). Brickley is eighth in the nation and first in the WCHA in defenseman scoring with 22 points.

Freshman forward Parker Tuomie scored game-winning goals both games (although the second, in 3-on-3 play is not official). He gave MSU a 3-2 lead at 3:07 of the third period on Friday and Saturday gave MSU the extra point for the league standings with his 3-on-3 goal. Tuomie has five goals and five assists this season, which ranks eighth on MSU's scoring chart.

The Mavericks will travel to Alaska Anchorage this week for a league series.
